Not a very promising list in my opinion. Nintendo's titles will be worth putting some cash out for. Majesco's Bust-a-Move Bash could be fantastic, or it could ruin a great franchise. Midway hasn't given anyone a reason to think another Mortal Kombat game would be worth their dough in about a decade.
The new Pokemon is said to be Nintendo's first online game for the Wii, and they better hurry-up with some follow-ups if they plan not to repeat the lackluster competitive performance of the Gamecube.
In any case, as relatively depressing as this list is... Wii owners shouldn't fret too much. It is the summer line-up after all. No console can expect will expect any major blockbusters until the Christmas season.
